Aboriginal pedagogy

Recently I was introduced to the 8 Aboriginal Ways of Learning (pedagogy). As the Australian Curriculum takes shape I think being introduced to the 8 Ways will be beneficial to all Australian educators. It leads on from my previous post in that knowing pedagogy is just as important as knowing resources available. For instance, having an awareness of how individuals learn involves more than having an Aboriginal legend or story in a unit of work. It is about time the Aboriginal perspective is communicated and I commend those involved in sharing “the yarn”.
